Being Himself

If anything simply cannot go wrong, it will anyway...

Some days are just hellish and today so far has been one of those.
Woke up feeling great, had a tiny workout felt even better.  Brutus doing good and so is Arvid.  Nothing planned for the day but paperwork and gathering papers for the filing of  out tax return. 

The day is gloomy looking, perfect for catching up on paperwork or even going to the mall for a little.  The way I put it to Arvid was, "the mall is a good place for you to walk and get some exercise."   Seems like the rest of the week will also be getting colder and colder.  Chill for us here in Florida.

Nothing really goes as plans.  Early in the morning the phone rings.  8am is very early for Arvid who was still in bed.  He told the caller, call me back in an hour, I look at him and said why didn't you take the call?  He looks at me and says, "if I start doing that everyone will be calling this early.  We have to start training them from early on."

That was that.  Then the doctors office called to remind us of our appointment tomorrow.  Blood check once a week, but then the girl said "sorry we don't have the tubes we need to draw your blood.  We have scheduled you to do the test elsewhere."  We went to the elsewhere and walked right back out.

OK, now Arvid is annoyed.  Says he will ask the doctor how come her office is run in such a disorganized fashion?  Then he went on and on about how to run an office more efficiently.  I listen patiently until the ranting is over then ask him if he is done.  Was not too happy then either.

I asked him if he would like to ask the doctor a few questions when we go there next time.  His answer, "I'm sure she will not know the answer.  You know more than she does."  In a way I guess he is cute when not ranting and raving about incompetence.

So we had some chores to take care of and off we went.  Was fruitless since neither of us found what we needed.  That also made him rant some more, this time about how we just wasted so much time for no reason at all.  I listened and then said, "OK let's go to the mall for a little so you can walk around."  He said, "OK" and to the mall we went.

I got some time to do a few things I needed to do and he walked.  Then it was back home to gather more paperwork..from the looks of it this will be a long day and tomorrow promises to be more of the same.

Thankfully, in between of all of this there is soccer on TV.  Then he is happy and calm that is until his team does not score then it's back to the ranting and raving....

You know I love this man:)

It sounds funny, but my biggest fear is that I'm not perfect. 
I'm a perfectionist, and I get upset when things go wrong or when I don't do well. 
I used to be very uptight, but I've learned to loosen up...
